Mid 1800s Dual Handed Carpenter Rim Lock

Sold out
£166.67

A really unusual Late Georgian/Early Victorian wrought iron antique dual handed (works on both sides of the door) carpenter rim lock (the handle bolt goes up/down, not in/out) with its lovely original keep. Had a few carpenter rim locks over the years, never had a dual handed one before, this is probably the earliest dual handed rim we've had. All refurbished and lightly refinished with original key and dual handed keep.

Condition:

Great original working condition, lots of signs of old finishes. We've made a few repairs so the key is a little stiff and we've replaced the spindle entry with a modern one. Its obviously been used as a left handed lock as the keep is only worn on that side. If you using it again as a left handed just double check the keep location before making the screw holes.

Handle backset: 95mm (3.75in)  Key: 65mm (2.5in)
